    KOTOR is easily my favorite RPG since Fallout 2. I'm a huge Star Wars fan and I just thought that it was fucking marvelous - story, levels, characters (Juhani sucks) weapons, etc.

    KOTOR 2 started off dull. Really, the whole "trapped in a mysterious space station with scattered crew records that piece together what happened" thing that everyone's been stealing from System Shock 2 is played out. Once you got past that and Citadel station, the levels were fantasic, paticularly Nar Shadda. Then the last level sucked The characters and how you interact with them were much more developed this time, Kreia was more interesting than any of the Prequel characters. It would have been better if LucasArts let them FINISH THE DAMN GAME though.

    Other than those 2, no new RPGs. I hate Fantasy - magic, elves, all that crap, to hell with it.

    Fable for PC is awesome imho. Yes its a cartoon but at least its british and funny. Its a pretty damn fun fighting game. Since its for pc it also feels a lot better than the old xbox one which i briefly played and did not care for. Give the PC version a try when its released

    Anachronox

    Unique style, largely overlooked game. Souped-up Quake engine, tons of tongue-in-cheek humor, great in-game cutscenes (even made a Machinima movie out of them).
